Vuokatti Safaris welcomes you to join our team at the Husky Center where you will experience the daily life of a husky musher during summer and autumn time. We will teach you about the culture and history of mushing and you will be taking part to all daily tasks with the guide. This is the best opportunity to learn about the life of arctic huskies and their careers through the seasons – what they eat, how we train them and how we take care of them.

We have a little bit under 100 huskies, both Alaskan & Siberian huskies. You will learn about the differences between the breeds and what they are all best suited to. Most of our dogs live two dogs per cage and all of them have a doghouse. We have several running areas for the dogs where they can have a daily run and play with each other. Our dogs are our family members, and all our guides knows each of them individually – and we are happy to introduce all of them to you!

Each day at the Husky Center is different, also depending on the time of the year. In the summer huskies might enjoy the sun lazily, splash with water in the dog pool or be very playful with each other. Then again in the autumn time training for the winter has started and dogs need to be trained daily. During summer and autumn we also might have puppies which of course need extra attention.
